According to a press release,

The County Council and Prince George’s County Planning Department, are conducting a comprehensive update of the County’s 50-year-old Zoning Ordinance to streamline zoning laws and create a user-friendly document supporting the County’s vision for smart growth, economic development and improved quality of life for residents.

Council Chair Derrick L. Davis (D) – District 6 says citizen involvement in the Zoning Rewrite process is critical.

“Updating the County’s zoning policies is among the most important undertakings of the Council in its role as the County’s land use authority. Residents deserve a leaner, clearer zoning process to be better informed about development and to play a more significant role in shaping the future of our County. I encourage all County residents and stakeholders to attend this Zoning Rewrite Town Hall meeting and share their thoughts and ideas concerning the Zoning Rewrite and its various modules.”

Presenters for the Council’s Zoning Rewrite Town Hall Meeting are Clarion Associates’ Directors Don Elliott and Craig Richardson. Chief of Countywide Planning, Derick Berlage; Zoning Rewrite Project Manager, Chad Williams; and Zoning Rewrite Outreach Specialist Brittney Drakeford will also be on hand to answer audience questions and participate during the discussion portion of the Town Hall meeting.
